This is a question most People ask when they are in an ambivalent stage of seeking help.
As humans, while in difficult situations, it’s normal to look for the magic wand that will ease the pains, whatever that might look like ( sitting with a therapist, talking to strangers, venting to friends, bottling emotions, and minimizing).
An excellent way to answer the question above is to ask:
What if I am the magic wand?
What will happen if I try therapy and it does not help?
What if there is no magic wand?
